MARRERO, La. - Wednesday is the grand opening of the new Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office's Third District Station.
The new building marks a milestone as it is among the first buildings completed in the developing Parc Des Familles.
The station is located in the 6000 block of Leo Kerner.
Although there is not much built in the area, the sheriff's office expects the area to become heavily residential.
The front of the building does not face the highway. Instead the entrance, which is on the backside of the building, faces the highway.
Offices are located on the second floor in case of a flood.
The station is set to be dedicated at 10 a.m.
